Charlie Shamp prophecy on US embassy moving to Jerusalem

Further to my closing remark in the previous post Sue Payne at UK Prophetic Words reminded me that Charlie Shamp also foretold an increasing prosperity for the United States. This would be as a result of its President’s radically different approach to Israel.  The following prophetic insights came to Charlie within weeks of Trump’s inauguration.

February 7th 2017 entry in his Destiny Encounters International reads as follows:

PRAYER SHIELD: UNITED STATES EMBASSY WILL  MOVE TO JERUSALEM

Today I saw walls of protection going up around the United States of America. I heard the Lord say, “I have given the country the Key of David.” I saw the Key come down and rest over Washington, D.C. and I saw the address change at the White House to read ‘Isaiah 22:22’ And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open. I saw a door of destruction has been closed over the nation and a door of blessing will be opened; American you have nothing to fear! The Lord says,

“I have locked out your enemies and no harm will come to you. Those who seek your demise will be stopped at your borders from this day forward.”

I suddenly was taken to Israel and saw the borders of Israel pushed out and a door standing closed over Jerusalem. I said, “what is this Lord?” I heard the Lord say,

“This is a door of blessing for America, I have given them the key to victory in the Middle East. They shall open the door and do what others were afraid to.”

I saw this Key open the door and a flood of blessing came down. I heard the Lord say that two blessings will come to America when the US moves its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. First the Lord will pour out a blessing over the United States Dollar, it will soar to new heights and secondly I saw the name David come out for the door and the Lord said there will come a man like David from the United States, a military man who will have a great mind. The Lord will give him wisdom and he will crush ISIS and remove its head, he will lead the US to victory over this darkness. – Charlie

Eagles over England 

Eagle-eyed by John Mark Long: courtesy http://www.propheticartists.com

Thank you Lord for another ‘sign’ received by Tony in Tucson on Christmas Eve. I concur with the comments about the meaning of eagles (NB: Why I Write/blog) and note also the significance of pastor John Kirkpatrick in Alabama having seen a bald eagle over his property in connection with Sept 23rd and Rev 12 plus UK-US spiritual connection, etc, etc (search ‘eagle’)

My Dreams and Visions

I had a dream this morning where I saw eagles flying from the sea over the English countryside and finally perching on Big Ben. What is interesting is that there seemed to be a lead eagle, if you will, looking back to see that the others were following and secondly I saw all this from the vantage point of the eagles.

‘God-incidents’ validate three prophetic visions

Today’s Keep Praying & Bless focus upon Edinburgh brings a decree and blessing so appropriate to the points I wish to convey on three visions I’ve posted this week:

‘We declare that our God is a powerful God who is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh in the last days according to His Word – We bless these islands with a fresh outpouring and awakening of God, for the Holy Spirit of Truth to come and revive the church, bringing repentance and transformation in our land. – Come Holy Spirit and move over our Nation with conviction and power.’

My favorite truth from Jesus is His explanation in John 3 to His secret disciple Nicodemus of how He and we follow Holy Spirit’s leading: “The wind blows wherever it pleases…So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” 

He blew strongly last Monday morning!

Once again showered with several pieces of an Invisible Jigsaw, my eyes opened to see so many of these ‘God-incidents’ – it’s been some time since I was so blessed.

Blogging ideas got blown away! After the long weekend I intended continuing on the USA-Jerusalem theme under title, ‘World’s woes caused by its leaders’ opening with Genesis 12:1 (blessing/cursing of Israel).

After noting William Koenig’s weekend update ‘Jerusalem Countdown’, as well as Gavin Ashenden’s demand that Archbishop Welby must apologise or resign because of his latest appalling nonsense, I was set to steam away – and planning to comment once again but more fully on a series of dubious articles run in Prophecy Today UK.

So after Monday’s usual domestic tasks, I was primed and pumped along those lines.

But it all got blown out of the window – and I’d spotted a hole caused by hailstone in the conservatory’s glazed roof that needed urgent attention!  Yet first to catch up and deal with email on return to my pc – but then I saw the first jigsaw piece and another, and in between fixing the hole in the roof, I got another as I perceived the ‘God-incidents’ of divinely directed data!!  I offer them for your consideration and weighing in sequence of my ‘perceptions’:

1st PIECE

This is the vision of Holy Spirit at heaven’s door in The Revelation of The Christ and His Kingdom, as revealed to Simon Braker and which I quickly reposted on Monday. I was struck by his description of those who don’t follow His directions or would argue with others, and especially of those in the pigpen with mud on their eyes – it perfectly describes the blindness and mud-slinging displayed in parts of that series of debatable articles. (They denigrate leadership at Toronto Airport Church Fellowship for events known as the ‘Toronto Blessing’ and attempts to connect it, if not lay the blame upon it, for many churches moving away from the authority of scripture.)

Only when re-posting did I note this ‘Revelation’ is dated Thursday 14th December, a week ago today.

2nd PIECE 

A week earlier (Wed 6th Dec), I’d seen ‘Blessing the Church? VI’, about the ‘Toronto Blessing’ (better known as an outpouring of Father’s Love) featured on Prophecy Today UK. That move of God  perplexed many because of its unusual manifestations of holy and unclean spirits, as is well-known in power encounters (eg. Mark 1:21-27 – Jesus’ first visit to a synagogue after His baptism in the Holy Spirit).

In my opinion and experience, this regurgitated missive (1995 ‘updated’ 2017) decrying Toronto utterly misrepresents what the Lord has been doing. So, in view of a busy blogging week I left a very brief comment :

‘…had you investigated the FRUIT you’d find Toronto REALLY does bless believers: eg. hundreds of thousands miraculous healings and rescues from bondage in Mozambique (mosques becoming churches and Muslim provinces turning to Christ) as well as the underground crusades in Pakistan, the repentance revival at Pensacola/Brownsville that brought masses to Christ – not to mention having been a 24/7 carer for my wife for only 6 months (instead of the subsequent 10 years!!) because she was dramatically healed after having been officially registered as permanently disabled, plus 5 improvements after subsequent recurrence!…’

3rd PIECE

My remarks generated a couple of queries, including a rebuttal from someone who,  like me, had been active in satan’s camp,  some of which I responded to in more depth the following week and to the latter person on Thursday 14th December.

As the article’s author didn’t get his facts right on the beginning of the ‘Blessing’, I recommended the balanced investigation with interviews in The Story of Toronto by our Bibliophile friend John Peters, who’d been in the groups we’d been to Toronto with 10-15 years ago. He’s biographer of The Great Revivalists.

The articles’ antagonism and judgementalism suggests their author is operating in an ungodly spirit and isn’t an obedient disciple of the Lord (I wondered if he may be excluded from entrance to heaven). Therefore, over the weekend I revisited John’s book and prepared to submit more facts to that series of ‘teaching’ articles. Yet it may be wasted time; as Jesus warned us not to ‘cast pearls…’  But my action was quashed because my speculation was answered in that first jigsaw piece, and even more specifically in the…

4th PIECE

This is another Monday morning email from UK Prophetic Words of a report issued Thursday 14th December entitled Those who take offence will not partake in the next move of God’s Spirit. I saw only that title and opening paragraphs. It’s an arrow hitting the bull’s eye of that partisan prophecy’ piece and so I emailed Suzanne Payne right away for information on its author Brett Dewey before my re-posting it. I didn’t have time to read until perusing a hard-copy over lunch, before which I had a reply from Sue as the…

5th PIECE

For a mistaken reason Sue drew my attention to the penultimate paragraph of Brett’s piece and which I hadn’t yet read: 

‘Last of all I will record the vision I seen in the December One Voice prayer meeting in our Church – During worship I was focusing on the Lord and watching for his Spirit – I seen myself in what was the top floor of an office building – the building was like one of the office buildings I was working in during security work – but it wasn’t – the building also looked like the building I was at for Bible college but it wasn’t – I was sitting in a chair looking up with my eyes closed but could see all that was in the room.’

6th PIECE

Those words in Sue’s reply sent me back six years to a very vivid visionary dream about the Kingdom of God and which confirmed what Bill Johnson, a close associate of the Toronto leaders, had prophesied that day during the first Revival Alliance Gathering in September 2011 being a turning point for the Kingdom of God in the UK (Father Let Your Kingdom Come and Update in previous post refers.) I replied that perhaps Brett should return to the vision and open his eyes to look outside the windows! 

7th PIECE

But in fact he’d already done something similar! Over lunch I read his whole piece, which closes with the vision received this month. There, I found that what Sue quoted is followed by:

Suddenly the whole roof lifted up off the floor and there were just open heavens – I had the feeling the Lord was removing restrictions – possibly the restrictions of man – we have perhaps put limitations on God – He removed the roof: there was no limit now – all restrictions man made or otherwise being removed in Jesus name.’ !!  W-O-W!  DOUBLE WOW!!

8th PIECE

Brett’s report opens with a dream in October featuring an incoming huge wave of God’s Holy Spirit but he notices someone attempting to prophesy by means of an unclean spirit – the Spirit of Offence. He hears the Lord instruct him on its meaning and realises the person prophesying wasn’t of God, yet presents herself as a prophet and who is a Christian. Unfortunately and sadly,  it speaks to me of the spirit behind those articles on a Christian prophecy website,  one I’d highly recommended to readers upon its launch!

Of particular importance serving as a lesson for me is what Brett learned at the Fire conference about the need to check ourselves and repent of any taking offence. I chose, therefore, to forget about taking that ‘Blessing’ issue any further.

Bringing prophetic pieces together

In closing, it’s worth reminding ourselves of Brett’s comments on such issues:

The Lord said that there would be many who would be offended because of Him. I felt a peace and a witness that what He was going to do in the next wave of glory would be offensive to many – especially people that had no room for GOD’S sovereignty in their mindsets…

‘I also believe the Lord encourages us not to be offended if other churches despise you or are offended, because you let God’s work be done and His Spirit manifest in all his Glory in the midst of your meetings. Hold fast to what is true. This is what the next wave will bring.’

Selah!

Praise and thank you Lord for such blessing and to everyone in this ‘invisible jigsaw’ for blessing and teaching me so much more than I knew before the start of this week.

May everyone reading this account be thoroughly blessed with fresh insights into our relationship with Jesus Christ and our heavenly Father’s love.

The manifestation of God’s Kingdom gets closer

The following blog posted six years ago today, and one month after its launch, is offered for reader’s information. Tomorrow we’ll consider its direct relevance to the two visions received by Simon Braker and Brett Dewey:

FATHER, LET YOUR KINGDOM COME (20th December 2011)

The following email submitted details of a dream that had been weighed by the senior leaders of Winchester Vineyard Church and forwarded to Christen Forster, organiser of the Revival Alliance Gathering.

A number of elements in that dream, which happened concurrently with the event, are related not only to foundational scriptures for lead-in prophecies at the Inception meeting in November 2010, but also to activities in the heavenlies at the time of the Gathering, as well as possibly indicating what may be about to happen soon in the UK.

Christen agreed to the dream being posted upon the Revival Alliance Gathering website as Feedback under Prophecies & Testimonials.  [Links no longer available but details can be read in the Update closing this blog.]

England ablaze – a second dream

Kitt Peak National (and Solar) Observatory outside Tucson: RB 4.2008

From his ‘spiritual observatory’ over 5,000 miles westward around the globe in Tucson, my cyber-friend Tony Puccio reports this pertinent dream of holy fire for the UK…and we’re increasingly aware of the lights starting to poke out through the blanket of spiritual darkness…

My Dreams and Visions

I start this post by posting a vision I had received 2 + years ago concerning England
The morning of, 08/17/2015, I had the following vision. I saw many many row boats, note that I said row boats and not ocean liners, leaving the shores of England for other parts of the world. Each of the boats had a small crew and I only saw one person rowing. This is part of a larger post entitled, ” England Ablaze”. I post this excerpt as it relates to a dream I had this morning.

This morning I had a dream where I did not see the country because it was dark but knew that it was England that i was seeing. In the vision above rowboats were leaving the shores of England. In the dream I had this morning I saw lit oil lamps leaving England. I do get the sense…

GPS#10 – vision warns about taking offence at Holy Spirit’s next move

Thank you to the Lord, Brett Dewey and UK Prophetic Words for this, which although not first or the last on a coming ‘Holy Spirit wave’ is exceptional. NB: this from Kingston and that of Simon in Leicester were originally published on the same day and confirm some events of that day – now that’s what I call God’s Global Prophecy Signalling system! 

THOSE HOLDING ON TO OFFENCE WILL NOT ENTER INTO THE NEXT MOVE OF GOD’S SPIRIT

During My time of fasting and praying in October I was given a dream.

In my dream I was standing upon an old wall overlooking the ocean. I pointed out towards the ocean and began to prophesy:

“A WAVE IS COMING, A WAVE IS COMING!”

Next thing I could see, there was a huge wave which was rolling in from the back. The wave came in and went half way up the beach. An old lady was on the beach and the water came to her feet. Even though she had wellington boots on she didn’t like the water being on her feet and walked off the beach.

I was again on the wall and looked out to the sea and began to prophesy “A WAVE IS COMING, A WAVE IS COMING”. Straight away a huge wave came in from the back.

This time the wave came right up to the beach and completely covered it. There was, however, a divider between the waters and right over the back on the right hand side, some distance from the shore, were a small group of people playing in the surf and having fun on their surf boards, enjoying the wave.

I then looked and I was standing by a teal green fence and it was like I was holding onto a fence. A woman who was standing on an old wall a little higher than the fence started trying to prophesy to me, but when I looked into her eyes she was of another Spirit not the Holy Spirit – so I called fire on her and she disappeared out my dream.

I then heard the Spirit of God speak saying:

“Those that are holding on to offence will not be able to enter in to the next wave of My Spirit.”

Also the woman prophesying that wasn’t of God presented herself as a Prophet, but was a woman who was a Christian; in offence she had been prophesying out of a divination spirit – as those in offence open the door to function from that Spirit when allowing it in – WATCH FOR THIS!

I first took the dream personally as a warning for me not to enter into offence – but later while attending a connect group in our Church, I felt led to release it – shortly after for the next few weeks I had fun walking out this word as that Spirit of Offence came through different vessels trying to find access to my life and calling, but never prevailed.

November’s 2017 Fire conference on the Saturday – I again saw this Spirit of Offence. I began asking the Lord what this was and had I offended him in any way – I began repenting – The Lord said that there would be many who would be offended because of Him. I felt a peace and a witness that what He was going to do in the next wave of glory would be offensive to many – especially people that had no room for GOD’S sovereignty in their mindsets.

I was also was reminded about the old woman, whom I believe represented an old Church, in my dream above – perhaps one set in religion, or tradition passed down – she didn’t like what the Spirit did and didn’t want to be in the water, which depending on the colour, represents the Spirit. She was stuck in tradition and legalism and hadn’t grasped the concepts of GOD’S enormous grace and sovereignty.

I also believe the Lord encourages us not to be offended if other churches despise you or are offended, because you let God’s work be done and His Spirit manifest in all his Glory in the midst of your meetings. Hold fast to what is true. This is what the next wave will bring.

Also I want to include that recently after releasing a word in our Church – KingsGate, Kingston – about turning the page and not being stuck on a page in the book of our life – as God has started your story and there was more – turn the page and keep walking – after I went and laid down before the Lord as His Presence became more manifest, again I saw this Spirit of Offence come out of a dark place – this time it was pinging back and forward looking for a place to land on the Church – I felt this was a prayer point and also it was an assignment from the enemy to abort us from enjoying the next wave of God’s glory which he has planned to be released in our meetings at a very large proportion.

I should have bound it when I saw it, but I just waited to hear more from the Lord about it.

Last of all I will record the vision I saw in the December One Voice prayer meeting in our church. During worship I was focusing on the Lord and watching for His Spirit – I saw myself in what was the top floor of an office building. I was sitting in a chair looking up with my eyes closed but could see all that was in the room.

Suddenly the whole roof lifted up off the floor and there were just open heavens – I had the feeling the Lord was removing restrictions – possibly the restrictions of man – we have perhaps put limitations on God – He removed the roof: there was no limit now – all restrictions man made or otherwise being removed in Jesus name.

I DECLARE AN OPEN HEAVEN AND WAVES OF HIS GLORY FLOODING OUR MEETING PLACES, FLOODING YOUR CONNECT GROUPS AND FLOODING YOUR HOMES – FLOODING YOUR CITIES, TOWNS AND NATION.

I ALSO FEEL THAT 2018 IS A YEAR OF INHERITANCE – RECEIVING INHERITANCE. GO FORWARD IN CONFIDENCE FOR THE LORD IS WITH YOU!

Brett Dewey, 14th December 2017

Footnote: the full word excites my spirit for two reasons: one connected to the warning and links into aspects of Simon Braker’s vision; the other is related to what propelled me six years ago from private correspondence into public blogging about the prophetic. The jigsaw pieces validate details of both prophetic visions, as told in this post!

Simon Braker: awesome vision of entrants to the Kingdom and of players in pigpen!

Simon posted this last Thursday on Prophetic Voice Leicester Facebook page (typeface colours by RB). It is especially pertinent in view of my ‘coincidental’ debate objecting to an article demeaning Holy Spirit’s bringing our Father’s love into the world via Toronto since 1994 (as here):

5778 The Year of The Door (Prophetic Art of James Nesbit – click4link)

THE REVELATION OF THE CHRIST AND HIS KINGDOM

The Lord took me into a vision/dream.

I was stood in front of a giant door; the door was so large that I could not see to the top of it.

As I watched, I saw people walking up to this door. It was at this point that I saw that this one door was actually made up of many small doors within the one big one.

As a person walked up, suddenly many of these small doors would open as they approached. As they did, blinding light of many different colours shone through the door.

I saw that as each person approached, they were greeted by a person the like of which I’ve never seen, and it would be very hard to explain.

This person had no fixed shape: like fire, wind or water; they also had no fixed colour as they shifted and changed constantly. As I looked, in the midst of this I could see the face of a man, the face of a lion, the face of a lamb, the face of an eagle, the face of a dove, and the face of a woman and the face of a small child all at the same time.

Sometimes one face would become clearer than the others, yet the other faces could still be seen in the midst of the wind, the fire and the water.

I understood that this person was the Holy Spirit; as each person came to the door, He would greet them and invite them to enter into a new door.

I heard Him say,

“The greatest doors are the ones you have to bow lowest to get through.”

As one older man came forward many of the small doors opened all at the same time. The light was both refreshing and blinding at the same time.

The man greeted the Holy Spirit and clearly they were close friends as they embraced one another like brothers; as they did the man was lost in the flames, wind and water.

They spoke for a short time then the man looked at the door, smiled then bowed to the ground and began to crawl towards a very small very low door. As he got close, he reached out to open the door; the moment his hand touched the handle he was lifted up off the ground at an awesome speed and a door that was very high up opened to him. Blinding light poured out the door as it opened as he entered in.

It was at this point that I noticed there were other people in front of the door. Most of them ignored the Holy Spirit; others actually argued with Him when He directed them to a door to enter through.

Still others were trying to climb up to the high doors but they would keep falling; each time they fell they became more and more bitter.

I then saw another group; they were shouting, ”You must only come through this door,” and not only did they try to force people through it, but they also tried to stop people going through the other doors the Holy Spirit was directing them to.

I could see that as a new door opened for a person it would sit upon the other open doors that person had, so each new door sat upon the others.

I then saw another group of people to the side of the door; they were all together rolling around in the mud in a pigpen. They were blind to their door for the mud covered their eyes; I could see many had been in the mud so long that they had begun to rot in the midst of it.

Upon the door I saw the words –

THE REVELATION OF THE CHRIST AND HIS KINGDOM

Let those who have an ear hear!

Vision of Jerusalem with angels – pray for its peace!

In addition to Tony Puccio’s comment about the need to pray for Jerusalem in response to my Update post, he’s also blogged:

Jerusalem has been proclaimed by President Trump as the capital of Israel. This has caused much turmoil among the surrounding nations to put it mildly. What I’ve seen in a vision today, however, was a walled city and there was a lot of dust being kicked up without the city. On each of the […]

First Sunday of Advent and a personal foretaste of Jesus’ return

Yesterday, Sunday 3rd December, saw the celebration of the First Sunday of Advent 2017. It’s always highly nostalgic to me because of a life-changing dream in 1989 that brought a totally unexpected and radical encounter with Jesus Christ.

FIRST & SECOND ADVENTS

The First Advent was when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea 2,000 years ago. The four weeks leading into Christmas are designated within the church calendar as Advent, and start the church year.  In traditional churches the scriptural readings for the First Sunday in Advent are usually on the glorious return of Jesus Christ to rule and reign on earth, known as the Second Advent.

My encounter featured two highly personal aspects of my life; thereby validating the experience as real, not imaginary. Amazingly, both validations are directly related to the First and Second Advents and enhanced my interest in End-Times, by which I’d been figuratively grabbed by an Invisible Hand only a few years earlier.

Six years ago this week, soon after launching this blog, I posted details of the encounter – one that gave a personal foretaste of the Second Advent!

One aspect I haven’t previously referred to, however, now needs highlighting in view of current events I must blog about. So it’s important for you, my reader, to appreciate the wider grounds upon which I take my stand AND call fellow disciples of Christ to TAKE A STAND.:

THE VISITATION

The brief account On a Trapdoor into Hell – Jesus Swoops to the Rescue tells the full story.

My background was one of deep involvement in New Age, Gnostic and occultic notions with meditational and mystical practices. Although not a practitioner, I was nevertheless  aware of the principles of witchcraft. Those practices had led to some unusual ‘psychic’ dreams, but none whatsoever were like this one.

This dream’s sudden ‘gearing up’ into the supernatural reality of demonic and angelic activity and the appearance of Jesus Christ above the clouds and His fast descent towards me, startlingly made me conscience-stricken and realise the truth of judgement – in great dread, mine was about to happen NOW!  And because of my sins I was now about to be dropped right into Hell – so in terror I just had to hide from HIM!  (And I did…but!)

Later, I understand that terror had been ‘the fear of God’ brought through Holy Spirit in convicting me of my sinfulness (ie. wrongdoing) and, thus, preparing me to receive God’s grace (ie. undeserved favour).

However, only this weekend have I realised another scriptural relevance of that fear – and that I’D BEEN BLESSED WITH A FORETASTE OF THINGS TO COME! 

APOCALYPSE – THE SIXTH SEAL OPENS:

‘The kings of the earth, the great men, the rich, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in caves and in the rocks of the mountains and said to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great and day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Rev6:15-17)

My reaction to that visitation from Jesus very closely matches the reactions described in Revelation chapter 6 to earth-and-heavens-shaking events that will lead into His return.  It could be said that, in addition to natural fear, the Spirit of Knowledge and of the Fear of the LORD (Isaiah 11:2) will come upon them.

So, I’ll be using that personal aspect as grounds for praying in a particular way for the conviction of sin and sincere repentance of reprobates who serve satan’s schemes.

Hence my taking note at the close of Emma Stark’s video of 24th November on the Lord’s preference for the kind of revival we should pray for.  ‘He said, “But Emma, I’d rather you ask Me for the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God.” And God said, “It is in that, that I can bring the extraordinary miracles.” And the Lord says that he is going to give back to his people right now…a godly capacity to fast; a godly capacity to pray; a godly capacity for greater holiness, because I believe that He’s saying to us,:

“Choose My move that is a holy, reverential, all-based response to Who I am, that will bring the greatest harvest, and the greatest salvation and the greatest miracles for a generation.”

Ezekiel’s vision of The Almighty’s flame-like glory

It was an immense delight soon after waking on this the last day of November 2017 that its meditation in Sanctuary returns to the first chapter of the Book of Ezekiel. Over the past four weeks David Strutt shared many gems from the OT prophets as a preparation for next month’s Advent season. It was instructive to dip into the relevant scriptures whenever possible, but I focused especially on those from Ezekiel and upon his life after receiving his Call 2,600 years ago!

After having blogged or read posts and comments on visions of holy fire, my eyes almost popped out upon reading…

Day 335 – November 30th

‘We cannot leave Ezekiel without going back to the beginning, to meditate a while on the vision that first put fire and fear and awe-struck love of God into his heart, soul and mind. He was by the River Chebar [exiled with the Hebrews in Chaldea/Babylonia] when a vision of heaven began. He saw things indescribable that are difficult to fully understand although our spirits rise with his as we hear of the beauty of the angelic forces and the servant beings. But there comes a point when even those pale into insignificance. [Am using New King James Version of Ezekiel 1:25-28 because it conveys a slightly fuller description than the New American Standard Bible.]:

‘A voice came from above the firmament that (was) over their heads; whenever they stood they let down their wings.

‘And above the firmament over their heads (was) the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne (was) a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it.

‘Also from the appearance of his waist and upward I saw, as it were, the colour of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around.

‘Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so (was) the appearance of the brightness all around it. This (was) the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.’

Selah!

This is where language fails to convey and do justice to novel experience. It was hard for Ezekiel to describe this staggering vision, as we may gather from his repetitions of ‘as it were’, ‘the appearance of’ and ‘the likeness of’.  In other words, we should infer that his description is not to be regarded as being totally definitive of the Almighty.

The important lesson for the prophet-in-training was that God was present in Babylonia as well in Jerusalem.

It’s particularly noteworthy from the vision that the throne above the ‘heavens’ has an occupant described as being human-like but composed of, as well as being obscured by, the brilliance of fire.

Note also Hebrews 12: after stating in verse 26 that God has promised “Yet once more I shall shake not only the earth, but also heaven’ (per Haggai 2:6) and explaining its meaning, the chapter closes with its reason:  For our God is a consuming fire’.

Reminder of vision of Holy Fire falling

World In Fire by Danilo Rizzuti (Freedigitalphotos.net)

This month has seen a rapidly growing number of powerfully encouraging and uplifting words and visions for followers of the Lord Jesus to weigh, ponder and pray. Into that mix, especially regarding visions of holy fire, UK Prophetic Words has published this from 2009 brought by Susan O’Marra. Her final paragraph is noteworthy in connection with the state of panic in the devil’s camp that the Lord showed Emma Stark (here):

VISION OF THE RAIN OF FIRE

‘In the vision, I was looking at the world from a suspended position. I could see people and areas from a panoramic position and also at times, I saw things close up. The position varied as it did with the scenes and with the messages that I was given to understand by the experiences given to me.

‘I saw what looked to me like great fiery rain coming from heaven and it came in great drops or elongated streams. It was not like the natural rain that we know of, but it was like spiritually infused living molten lava, a real fire, but it was Living Spirit; the living fiery essence of the Father that was raining down towards the inhabitants below.

Renowned prophet sees devil’s domain in deep disarray

On Friday this video appeared on Emma Stark’s Facebook and subscribers to Glasgow Prophetic Centre’s Lion Bites were emailed ‘You Need To Hear This Word of The Lord’.

I’m grateful to UK Prophetic Words for publishing this transcript (colour-text RB):

‘God said some amazing things to me recently and I wanted you to be the first to know, so that you can be blessed and released to advance at this time.

‘The Lord said to me, “Do you want to see Satan?” And I thought, ‘What a peculiar question!’ and I said, “God, actually, do you know what – no thank you very much!” And God said, “But I’d like to show you Satan,” and I said, “But God, I’d really rather see you.” And He said to me, “Emma, you see Me all the time.”

‘He took me to a place where he lifted back the veil and, for the first time actually ever in my life, I saw Satan in the distance and what absolutely shocked me was how panicked he was! He was pacing the floor. He was so full of anxiety. He was behaving like a truly defeated foe. And I started to hear (or God let me hear) him muttering under his breath, and he was saying “My power is limited; my power is limited.” And he said Leviathan and Jezebel had gone to him – two of his great demonic generals – wanting more power, and he had no more power to give them because of the effectiveness of the prayers of the Saints. And I could hear him say that Leviathan’s teeth had been broken in warfare, and that that strongman was in the process of being overthrown and defeated. And there was such a sense of panic in the enemy camp, and also a sense that the enemy was on the cusp of an internal civil war because of the acknowledgement that they had run out of power.

‘Now you and I know as Christian believers, we don’t need to think in the morning, ‘Oh, do you know I’ve only got five prayers today; what am I going to use them on?’ But actually, Satan does need to think like that because he is a limited being. But at the moment, I believe God is saying to us that his camp is in a crisis like it has never been in for many years. And the sense of panic in Satan’s mind is because he is going to have to take his eye off the earth and off us to deal with his own in-house battles.

‘And I heard the Spirit of the Lord say that this is a time for great victory, where you can take back that which was lost. And the Lord says that Satan’s grip is so loose on some things that where there were some business deals which didn’t come through, some buildings you were supposed to own, some properties you were supposed to move into, some things that were supposed to happen, the Lord is saying that He is loosing over his church an anointing to catch up and to take ground, but also to ‘retake’ that which was already lost. And the Lord spoke the word “CATCH UP!” with such a force that it started to resonate in our thinking and we started to remember where we were supposed to be.

‘So I want to loose that blessing over you right now that God is saying, He is releasing a ‘catch-up’ grace; that the time that you have lost and the things that have been taken are going to come right back into your world right now.

‘And then the Lord started to speak to me about Brexit, in the middle of all of this. And the Lord said this: “You” (you collectively, like, all of us – family) “have prayed for a revival and awakening and reformation in the UK for so long.” And the Lord says, “I have heard the prayers for revival and awakening and reformation.” And the Lord said, “I couldn’t come as close as I wanted to, to the UK, because I had to resist her because she was proud.” And many of us know that, actually, if we were scoring the UK in a pride rating, we would probably score it quite high. And we know from the Word of God that God resists the proud, and we know from the word of God that Leviathan (go and read Job chapter 41 if you want and 42, if you want to read about Leviathan), Leviathan is the strongman demon over pride in the earth.

‘And I heard God say this: “I will allow a bad deal for the UK in BREXIT, and it will bring a humbleness to the nation. And in the humbleness it will be an answer to your prayers, because it will break Leviathan off you. And in the breaking of Leviathan”, the Lord says, “I will rush towards you with revival and awakening that you have prayed for.” And so the Lord says, Do not fear the bad deal, for I am in it, and I am disconnecting you to reconnect you.” And the Lord says that there will be a move of God on the back of the humbleness that is going to come to the UK.

‘I heard the Lord say to the prophets in the land and people of revelation … that He is about to catch you up; that you are going to see regionally, and not just locally, that actually – do you remember when John goes up in Revelation and he sees all the churches of the region? And God says, at this time He is going to raise his leaders and His prophetic people to start to be a voice of leadership in national crisis. But He is going to bless you to be caught up to see more than you’ve ever seen before.

‘But then I heard God, just this week, say something quite remarkable. He says: “What sort of revival do you want?” He said to me, “Emma, the church gets to choose.” And He said, “You can have a revival that’s very similar to what you have known before.” And I’m like, “Well that sounds quite good God.” Depth of presence – it felt like water of glory cascading. And then He said, “But Emma, I’d rather you ask Me for the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God.” And God said, “It is in that, that I can bring the extraordinary miracles.” And the Lord says that he is going to give back to his people right now, and some of you just need to put your hand up wherever you are, because He’s giving back to you a godly capacity to fast; a godly capacity to pray; a godly capacity for greater holiness, because I believe that He’s saying to us,

“Choose My move that is a holy, reverential, all-based response to Who I am, that will bring the greatest harvest, and the greatest salvation and the greatest miracles for a generation.”

‘So I want to say, be encouraged. The enemy is at his weakest. God is humbling a nation and He is rushing towards us. Be blessed.’

Selah!
